Laser treatments to reduce hair shouldn’t change the skin color of an area, it is possible to get some mild darkening or lightening of the skin in the treatment area due to pigment changes, but it is most typical that these changes are only temporary if they occur before or after treatment and those who have darker skin. Side effects are minimal, and this is one of the primary benefits of using the laser for hair removal.

What It Treats
Dark, unwanted hair on the lower face, around the lips, neck, nose, scalp, forehead, and ears. With our rapid technology, we can also treat unwanted hair on the arms, shoulders, chest, nipples, back, legs, and bikini area. While waxing can address these areas, laser hair reduction is much more effective and long-lasting. Both men and women can receive treatment.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
- The laser light beam in the treatment area is absorbed by the melanin pigment in the hair itself.
- The light energy generates heat which in turn damages the hair structures that produce hair.
- Those follicles are permanently damaged so they cannot produce hairs, but some stem cell activity over time can result in some future hair growth in the treatment areas.
- Multiple treatments are needed for initial hair removal, and maintenance treatments are generally recommended on a yearly or semi-yearly basis.
